Well before dawn on Sunday, 22 May, some 300 people of different faiths walked 5km from Hong Hock Si Temple in Perak Road to China Street Ghaut in George Town.
It was the first leg of an 850km ‘Journey of Awakening for Peace, Interfaith Harmony and a Sustainable Environment’ from Penang to Johor. See a report in The Star and the website for the journey.
Participants will collect rubbish including cigarette butts and plant trees during the journey. The next big stop is in Taiping.
